Members of the team at the Laboratory for Intelligent Systems and Technologies (LIST) work at the boundary between traditional civil engineering and related engineering disciplines (such as electrical engineering, computing science, data science, material science and sociology) to convert traditional infrastructure into more intelligent and reactive systems through the integration of sensing, computing, and actuation technologies. The conversion of society’s infrastructure systems into more reactive and adaptive systems through cyber-physical system (CPS) architectures greatly enhance their performance while rendering them more resilient against external stressors including natural and man-made hazards. Infrastructure systems whose health is closely monitored also have lower life-cycle costs and significantly longer services lives over which their initial carbon footprint is amortized. More recently, the lab has extended its work to include the monitoring of how people use infrastructure and derive benefits. This allows CPS architectures to monitoring and even control social uses of infrastructure to further enhance community resilience. The research themes in the LIST portfolio range from the development of new sensors for monitoring infrastructure to advancing machine learning algorithms to gain new insights to infrastructure performance using data. Integral to the LIST identity is direct collaboration with community stakeholders for full-scale field deployments of solutions to assess and quantify their impact. This hands-on approach to working with stakeholders in the field ensures the research remains well grounded in the societal problems being tackled. LIST also works closely with the University of Michigan Urban Collaboratory to work closely with communities solving stakeholder challenges through the use of intelligent infrastructure technologies.
